General information for volunteers
What would I be doing if I volunteer with Scottish Natural Heritage at a National Nature Reserve?
Volunteers help us with a range of activities at National Nature Reserves. These vary depending on the management requirements of the site, and the time of year, but can include things like
- practical work, perhaps path maintenance, scrub clearance or litter picks
- monitoring of particular habitats and species, perhaps of birds, butterflies or trees
- working with the public, perhaps manning a visitor centre or helping to lead groups
A Volunteer Role Description is developed for medium-long term Volunteer Roles with Scottish Natural Heritage and will provide information about what a particular volunteer will be asked to do. For shorter Volunteer Events, the Event description will provide information about what is required.
How do I apply to be a volunteer on an NNR with Scottish Natural Heritage?
Our Volunteers' Handbook gives more information. If you are interested in an advertised Volunteer Role, you need to complete the Volunteer Expression of Interest Form , and return it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will consider it, along with the others received and let you know if you are successful.
If you are unsuccessful, we will keep the form for 6 months in case another suitable Volunteer Role is developed. If you do not have a particular Volunteer Role in mind, and want to let us know that you are keen to volunteer with us, again the thing to do is to complete the Volunteer Expression of Interest Form and return it to us. We will keep it for 6 months and will try to match you to any suitable Volunteer Roles that are developed.
If you are interested in helping at a Volunteer Event, you just need to follow the requirements on the Event description.
What volunteer roles are currently available?
Sorry there are no volunteer roles available at the moment but we will add them as they are identified in the future.
